WikiConference North America 2018: Proposals and Scholarships now open
On behalf of the WikiConference North America organizing team, I'm pleased to announce that proposal submissions and scholarship applications are now open! Both are due by August 15.
WikiConference North America 2018 is taking place in Columbus, Ohio, from October 18-21. Our host is the Ohio State University Libraries, which provides a great opportunity to work with the local libraries and cultural institutions.
For submissions, we are looking forward to seeing proposals for presentations, workshops, roundtables, panels, and more. We also have an academic peer review track this year.
Scholarship applications are open to Wikimedians who live in North America and actively contribute to a Wikimedia project. Scholarship awards are $500 USD. The Wiki Education Foundation is also providing their own scholarships for presenters participating in the academic peer review option.
